Ignorance, in the tirst place, of the causes of poverty and paui>eii«m— and just here let mc em phasize the thought that tiie words "pov erty" and "•pauperism," "poor" and "pauper" are not synonymous. Pauper ism is poverty become chronic*. Only an incurable poor person is a pauper. Ig norance. in the second place, of the spirit fatal method of investigation and registra tion. Now what is it we hope to gain from the investigation of a given cast-? Knowledge, tirst, of the actual present con dition. An answer to the question. Is the family really needy? If so, what does it need? If the need is for material re lief and urgent is must be (and always is) immediately met. Neither here, nor else where, are persons allowed to starve pend ing an investigation of their case. Imme diate relief is given whether or no. But the bed-rock principle underlying the methods of charity organization societies is that real charity must be a cure for poverty. To intelligently apply the rem edy there must be a comprehensive knowledge of tiie causes which contributed to the result. The fact needs to oe kept constantly in mind that poverty and pauperism are abnormal conditions—the former a temporary state, the latter a chronic stage of the same state. It is, therefore, as senseless for the charity worker to prescribe for a case of poverty Without knowledge of the facts us for a physician to prescribe for a patient with out lirs? diagnosing the In :t sen tence, investigation is the diagnosis of a case of |K)verty with a view towards find ing what is the best remedy to apply to affect a cure. "1 only repeat the teachings of the great body of my instructors and fellow work ers whet. I declare emphatically that the sole purposes of tiie investigation rnd the permanent record is the increase and not the decrease 0 f charity—the increased ex penditure of time and money in the ser vicel of the unfortunate, the rescue of a large number of < hlidren from tlependency. and even downright material relief in food. ! tel. clothes, medicines, shelter, etc., of an increased proportion of the human be ingß. who. to jnvi rt an offlcinl phrase, i;e.-d relief rather than disi Ipiine," (De vine, ( 1 want to declare emphatically, how ever. that material relief given without investigation in its effects upon the aver ;»«•* recipient is Infinitely worse than none. Better not give at all than to give un wisely. l!" you haven't ttme to find out the real need, in ninety-nine c.ises out of i'»> it will be a !> -Itive kindness to refuse _»1 tn j*. The further fact needs emphasis that in v -tlgatlon is not .1 process of labeling; cer tain pets« ns "worthy" and certain others " unworthy." These are technical terms understood by the skilled charity worker, bit unfortunate selections because mis understood by the great mass of people. In t!ie eyes of :he real lover of his kind no man or woman is re,illy unworthy. The > wer down in the - ale of human degra dation one is the greater his need—the . our debt t<> him. He may not need alms—often be doe- not—but he dots n«d something. and the whole purpose of an inv» stigation i* to find out what he does Tie.,] and give him that—not something else. And just here a good pla« e to point ...it ti • limitations of investigation.

UHKtT NOKTHKRN Mill K BOOMS. Uf«|iilc Humors, CompanyV Officers Smy \ o ( hanice* Are Contemplated. NEW YORK, Feb. t.-The Tribune says; "The stock of the Great Northern rail road showed unusual strength Thursday, and the preferred made the important Kain of 12 points in the course of the day. This rise w.is accompanied by various rumors al>out possible changes in the road that would increase its earnings and make the stock more valuable. One of the stories was to the effect that James J. Hill, president, and Jacob Sell iff, of the I'nion Pacific reorganization committee, had held various conferences, and that development in which both roads would participate might be looked for. Henry \V. Cannon, president of the Chase Na tional bank and a director in the Great Northern, when asked about the report that somo change was expected in the Great Northern, replied: "You can say as comitiK from me that there is no plan for any immediate change in the great Northern. 1 mean by hat, not this week or next week or next month. Of course, i cannot delve further into the future." "How do you account for this sudden rise in the stock?" Mr. Cannon was asked. "I suppose It can be traced to specula tive causes," said Mr Cannon. "Mr. Hill is here now and reports things to be in excellent shape. Me has not purchased a share of stock sine- he has been h*re. The property is doing well.

Whatever there may be in rumors about a closer afrrrement or possibly .1 union with the I'nion Pa< Ifi.-, it wis learned from other trustworthy sources that a plan is under consideration which contem plate* the retirement of the collat. ral trust bonds of the company, amounting to t««> uid the company ;1! -.» truir an tees Interest on bonds of : übsidiarv companies amounting to *m.

Crndnic and Agricultural Diatrlct— Nature's Wonderful Work. Coulee City, Feb. 2, lSss. Geographically Coulee City is situated by railroad 124 miles west of Spokane. on a bench of the Grand Coulee, and is the terminus of th«* Central Washington rail way. The lands surrounding the town aie valuable only for grazing purposes and stock raising Is the principal occupation. Some Idea of the importance of this In dustry can be gathered from tlue Tact that during 1,597 there were shipped frum Cou lee City 1.18 ears of cattle, or 3873 head, worth 112.750. Some of these cattle were shipped to the Kastern states, there to be fattened on com. A number of cars found their way to Seattle and other coast c t les for home consumption, while others that were large and well fatted were bought for the Klondike trade. Besides these were ten cars of horses shipped Fast and about as many moro diiven Into British Columbia and sold. There is a large surplus of horses in Douglas county and we can freely say that there are running at large between this place and White Bluffs, on the Col vmbia south 1.",ft00 horsey. Scab or grazing lards extend on th# east and v.- st of tow n for six miles, when good agricultural lands are found. North east Is the California u-ttlemenf that lies north of the Central Washington railway, extending to the breaks of the Columella river. Failure of crops is not known. There Is plenty of rain fall and the soil equals the famous Falouse. It has been cultivated lor several years and the farms re well improved and their owners are in stood circumstances. The products of the settlement are marketed at llartllne, a station twelve miles east of Coulee City. On the plateau, six miles west, at an elevation of 1,000 feet above the Coulee, are found the St. An drews and Baird settlements that are proving good grain producing countries. These settlements are more sparsely set tled ~nd there nre still thousands of acres of as good prairie lands subject to entry as ever was turned l>y the plow and judg ing from inquiries, there will be quite a number in the spring that will take ad vantage of this opportunity to secure free home*. The greatest natural wonder of Kastern Washington is the Grand Coulee. This great fissure in the earth commences at Coulee City and runs in a northeasterly direction fur thirty-five miles to the Col umbia river. The Blue I.ake Coulee, whose he ol is also here, runs southwest and ends at what is known as the desert at Rphrata. t.orth cf the Ore it Northern.

To the Kd»toi: A feeling akin to indi cation exists in the heart of every ma t who fought to v ave the union because a pOctlon of the public press had seen tit In use their columns to defame them for de manding and receiving the same treat ment which this government has accorded her defender* from the close of the war of Independence until the present time. Tho war of ISI2 was a small affair and no more to be compared with that of the* civil war than a mole hill to Mt. St. Klias. and yet their widows are all placed upon the j>en9ion rolls and no questions asked. The first serious opposition to pensions began against the ex-union soldier for ai; parties are agreed on the wisdom of providing for all others. There seems to be thr»v «lasses of our fellow citizen* who are wonderfully exer cised for fear that some poor broken-down poverty-stricker old soldier, his widow or orphan, should have the temerity to ex tract a few more half-pence from this great government than these crafty critics think they are justly entitled to. In their eyes there is only ore kind, of a patriot who fought to preserve the union nnd that Is the saintly Individual that refuses to apply for a pension because forsooth hl« heart is wrung at the fraud* committed by his comrades. As but one of those specimens of humanity has made himself known, notwithstanding the many report ed, he should be canonlied. lie really deserves martyrdom and most of his com rades would like to be In attendance when the transition takes place. There are three classes of critics; first the young men who have grown up since the war, who had no n -ar relatives In the great contest and hen-e have no concep tion of the magnitude of the struggle and know absolutely nothing of the sacrifices and sufferings of the participants. Sec ond. the foreigners who came to our shores to escape mllltHry duty and whoso prejudices are fully developed. Third, and the most venomous, are the million aires who took the fun jHiund of flesh though lt« victims writhed In anguish at the operation. The latter class control the great metro politan press and It Is In these dens that nine out of ten of the fakes about (ten sion frauds originate. On* of the worst of tliis of abominations is the New- York Sun, the majority of whose Ktock Is owned and controlled by one J. Pierr«- ponf Morgan, whose unsavory name h><* become a stench In the nostrils of every patriotic citizen of this nation. Ts there a human U-inir verdant enough to believe that this robber of the public treasury < ares one whit whether the country ;s "pinched" or not so he gets his coupons cashed In gol<i? It wis this same patriot who lifted up hi* hypocritical eyes and pretended affluK ment because some one made n proportion to pay. the soldiers In gold.
